*Roster update reflects end of season upgrades.
Alex Smith and the Kansas City Chiefs are on a hot streak – hitting their stride heading into the Divisional Round with an 11-game win streak. While a lot has happened since their last meeting with Tom Brady, there are rumblings going around stating that the Chiefs could pull out another victory against the Patriots. For his rock solid play, Alex Smith earns a +1 OVR (87)
Greg Olson has been playing lights out the entire season. The Carolina Panthers’ leading receiver is Cam Newton’s favorite target on the field – and he will need a big game against the Seahawks he they intend to make it to the next round. Best sure that The Legion of Boom will look to shut down the Panthers offense, so Olson’s +1 OVR (96) should come in handy.
